It's 1978 in "America's Finest City"-San Diego, California-and one rookie cop is learning the hardest lessons the streets have to teach. Luke Jones-a recently graduated, Shakespeare-quoting literature major-is about to discover that dealing with crooks is the easiest part of his new job. For here, in a world populated by people ruled by their obsessions, Luke's strong will and quick tongue alienate many of his senior officers, and he must fight for acceptance. Though eventually labeled a hero, his success comes at great cost.
The Sticking Place is the first in the Luke Jones series, which follows one cop's career from rookie to retirement.
"A must-read for every cop who ever worked the streets of a major city and for anyone with an appreciation of realistic literature that depicts what it will always mean to be a cop."-Jerry Sanders, mayor of San Diego
